Mats Sundin has just signed with Vancouver, and there’s nothing that I could possibly say that hasn’t been said or will be said.
I’m going to laugh like crazy if he turns out to be mediocre, or gets hurt and plays very little. The hockey world has treated this guy like he’s Wayne Gretzky, Rocket Richard, and Mario Lemieux all wrapped in one. And the hockey world has let him write his own ticket – money, when he’ll play, and where he’ll play, and whether he feels like playing at all. And now he’s going to wait until he enjoys his Christmas and New Year’s before he joins the Canucks. They say we’re in a recession? Not so in pro sports.
Talk about a guy dictating to the league how it’s going to be.
I’ve never seen anything like this before. And Montreal lost a second-round draft pick trying to get this guy.
